My opinions on matters of the day that, generally, have pissed me off. Being described as a 'Surly Curmudgeon', by those who meet me on a good day, I have a poor regard for the human species. This is my place for my free speech- not bloody yours. Crap under your own rock.

Children, aircraft and bloody useless staff
I would be a bit peeved if I was asked to move, because I may be a perve, mind! Any of the gloried tea-room staff called cabin crew should be able to pacify me easily. An upgrade or a very large and expensive drink would work wonders. My experiences with the offending airline is that the mutton-done-up-as-lamb cabin tarts couldn't keep hungry wolves in a butcher's shop. (this was some years ago, I must admit)
Working in the sex offenders wing of a prison has made me a bit touchy about being thought of as one of these filthy subhumans!
I don't regard the incident as being a great example of PC'ness, just bad management by the airline.
The real PC dicklickers are the ones slamming Mr Worsley for daring to speak out!

ERO Morons (again)- your tax dollars at 'work'
Teachers are being ticked off for dishing out lines to teach students a lesson. The Education Review Office has pulled up a west Auckland school for making students write lines for bad behavior. In its latest report the ERO has suggested Westbridge Residential School revisit its use of writing as a disincentive. After completing a standard review of the school it found students sent to time out were required to copy out a sheet of writing. The intention is to help them reflect on their experience. However the Education Review Office suggests this could lead students to regard writing as a form of punishment.
ERO- Anal-Retentive Masters (or should that be gender- neutral!) of PC-ness gone mad, strike another blow for the destruction of the NZ school system.
fortunately, most school kids are balanced enough to avoid being traumatized by writing lines and will go on to lead productive and useful lives. The others will find that the public service uses keyboards, nowadays- so no harm done either way!

It's been a long few days!
I have done about 15,000 words on my latest book, in the last week, though. I will be back when the money-making stuff slows down. It's a bit like hay-making- when the ideas come, you write and damn everything else. When the story takes me, sex, food and physical comfort follow behind. It doesn't last that long ;-)

Weally Depwessed Wabbit Wooter
SYDNEY: A former Auckland man, charged with animal cruelty and bestiality, failed to meet his bail conditions because he was too depressed to leave his house, a Sydney court has been told.
Brendan Francis McMahon, 37, appeared in Parramatta Local Court on Saturday after failing to report to police as required by the courts on Thursday.
McMahon is on bail on 21 charges, including aggravated cruelty to animals, bestiality and drug possession.
Police alleged when he was arrested in August that 17 dead or dying rabbits and a dead guinea pig were found near his central Sydney office between July and early August.
I would be bloody depressed too, if that was the the only way I could get any action!

Name the Picture!
I found this interesting picture, on my travels (Hat tip to Doderryoldfart )
I like to call it:
'Your Tax Dollars'
Can you think up another name for it?

On Religion, Spirituality and masturbation
I don't actually have a problem with other people's beliefs. They might be irrational and masochistic, but that is their concern. Like wanking, it is socially acceptable if done in private and without announcing it to the world.
I suppose people who spend hour in prayer, meditation or ritual aren't climbing though windows and removing your property. I used to live out the back of the Hari Krishner temple in Christchurch and I never saw anyone in an orange sheet trying car doors at 3am.
When I do start taking exception with matter religious, is when they go missionary. I want to hear the word of the lord as much as I want to listen to the guy in the next flat wanking like a mad monkey. Hell, I heard enough mattress abuse and onanism to last two lifetimes, when I worked in the prisons!
The REAL problem starts when religion and politics start to mesh together. Look at the basket-case nations of the world, to see the results. (with North Korea, Kim Dim-Sim and the State are the religion)
The Destiny church are a dangerous lot, too and one that is probably not taken seriously enough. It looks like Fascism wrapped up in family values to me and I would trust them about as far as I could comfortably spit a large rat. They quite remind me of the Fosterites in 'Stranger in a Strange land'!
A long time ago I came to the conclusion that debating with the religious is like teaching a pig to whistle, so I don't bother. It's in the same league as talking Libertarian policy, to a Labour party member.
So the most they get from me now is a 'Sod Off!'. You only get so many breaths in a lifetime.
They are as likely to give it away, as a teenage boy is to stop wanking.

The Impending Doom
For instance, in reply to my speculations:
"Games will Never be developed for 486 machines- those are for serious business users!"
"Nobody would go to a small bar that served only wine and bottled beer and didn't have a band"
"The Internet will only be used by nerds and academics "
"Wine will never be popular in New Zealand"
"cellphones will only ever be used by businessmen"
OK, these are more a reflection on the myopia of others.
My prediction now:
We will have what amounts to another World War, by about the end of the decade. Riots, such as those in Paris, will be on-going throughout the Western world (and probably most of the rest) Most of the world will be like Northern Ireland was, so recently.
Yes, here, in New Zealand, too!
I also predict a backlash against the whole PC kid-gloves treatment of other cultures. As with backlashes, the pendulum will invariably swing too far, with mass deportations, gulags and all that goes with them. Totalitarian governments will become the norm- look to the US for this, as agencies lobby for legislation to give them more and more power.
We still need to take a lot more pain before this happens, but I feel it coming.
Why is this happening?
Those who despise our way of life have found a major breach in our defenses and are cleverly exploiting it. We cannot speak out against the very cancer that is spreading- that is called 'Hate speech' (gag!) and carries hefty penalties.
It's easier to police than a rioting mob, too...

Some (serious) Politically Incorrect questions
Some Very Good Questions
Islam is referred to as the Religion of Peace and yet the vast majority of the world's terrorist attacks are perpetrated by Muslims. Jihad Watch has questions asked by Dennis Prager in his LA Times column. Below is the first:
1) Why are you so quiet? Since the first Israelis were targeted for death by Muslim terrorists blowing themselves up in the name of your religion and Palestinian nationalism, I have been praying to see Muslim demonstrations against these atrocities. Last week's protests in Jordan against the bombings, while welcome, were a rarity.
(2) Why are none of the Palestinian terrorists Christian?
(3) Why is only one of the 47 Muslim-majority countries a free country?
(4) Why are so many atrocities committed and threatened by Muslims in the name of Islam?
(5) Why do countries governed by religious Muslims persecute other religions?
I don't think we should hold our breath waiting for a reply...

Judges- a big part of the problem.
Principal Youth Court Judge Andrew Becroft said yesterday it was the length of time child offenders were being kept in police cells that was scandalous.
"It is a very serious situation when vulnerable young people are locked up for that long.
"It could be argued that a night in a cell might not do a potentially serious young offender any harm, but when it becomes a week in virtual solitary confinement, it is quite scandalous in a civilised community."
These little slime-buckets are already FUBAR. I agree, most of them shouldn't be locked up, they should be humanely put down.
FFS- a week banged up in solitary is nothing. These POS don't live in the civilised community, in any case!
Maybe Judge Bleedingheart can put them up at his house?
Some police officers spoken to say there is growing frustration at the number of youth offenders who are remanded into police custody.
"These aren't your typical children of course; they are obviously hard-core and hard-out, but they should not be with us. They need to be in a secure facility designed for children," said one officer.
See my comments above. I think the police, like many of us are frustrated that we can't just shoot them!
Judge Becroft said extended confinement in police cells was "wholly unacceptable".
Cry me a river- having them at large in the community is 'wholly unacceptable'!
What do these overpaid snivel servants propose to do with this plague of feral children?- other than pontificate on those who actually have to deal with these little scrotes, that is. I'm sure they would be the first to call the same police that they so love to condemn, should they find one of these ferals makinfg free with their property.
Meanwhile, the rest of us- the ones these judges are meant to serve, believe the disgrace is not in locking these swine up- but is THE CRIMES THEY COMMIT and the fact that the namby-pamby laws let them walk free for anything less than murder.
We (the 92% that want the worthless locked up longer) want judges to apply the full penalties of law- to these ferals and those who are blatantly neglectful in raising them.
The worst of them are like mad dogs- one cure for a mad dog and it involves hot lead.
As for Judges, I'm starting to think they ought to be elected officials. A little fear for their gilt-edged jobs might make them more responsive to the community.

Political Correctness in the home
Describing wife's friends as 'Severely Fuckable'
Describing wife's sisters as 'Severely Fuckable'
Describing any of the cast of 'Hi-5' as 'Severely Fuckable'
Teaching boys how to light farts.
Using the dishwasher to clean your pistols .
Tampons are not a firearms cleaning aid.
Reprogramming the remote control minus channel two.
Referring to the children as Demon Spawn or Satan's Little Helpers.
Using a bra as a flying helmet, whilst doing Biggles impersonations, no matter how funny the boys find this.
Rum does not go in the goldfish tank.
Ronald MacDonald does not really eat children.
Ronald MacDonald is not the antichrist (he hasn't passed the exam)
I don't eat babies and should not tell small children that.
Baby oil does not contain babies.
The Warehouse is not the place that 'Boys go in, Sausages come out'
Green plants are a food group.
Eggs are not aborted chicken fetuses.
Hot dogs do not contain their namesake.
Insolent children are not placed in a burlap bag and beaten with a reed.
Urine might be good for citrus trees, but not while anyone is watching.
They are breasts, not 'Dirty Pillows'
Cosmetics do not contain Whale blubber.
Sugar is not 'Kiddie P'
Three year-olds do not learn to say "Pull your finger out, women", all by themselves.
The children are not the Spawn of Satan nor the Midwich Cuckoos.
Rest homes are not 'Pre-Death Storage Facilities'.
Other people's children are not 'grounds for post-natal abortion'- at least in front of our kids.
menstruating women are not 'Unclean'
Pre-menstrual women should not have to carry a bell.
Girl children are not 'Duds'
Full Metal Jacket, Saving Private Ryan and Blade Runner are not suitable viewing for under 10's
I will not notice who is wearing g-strings at playcentre or at least not remark on this.
I will not point out to the boys- "look at the enormous elephant knickers!", in department stores.
I will especially not do this in Kirk's
Telling telemarketers to "sod off and die" is considered impolite..
Telling collectors I have their disorder and need some of the collection money now, is embarassing to others.

In Praise of Poteen!
I usually produce something like the above, but this time, my product resembles window cleaner. I should have gone to the farm and got some good non-compliant creek water, instead of using town water, which tastes like the swimming pool water, from a school for the incontinent.
Still, that is what Coke is invented for- to make bad booze pleasant, or at least drinkable.
But the real joy of Poteen is not about taste. It's about savoring a drink, knowing that you are not financing the govamint's social agenda's. (aside from the GST, etc. On the Coke- bugger!)
Ok so knowing that I have won a small victory is no big deal- or is it?
We need to keep winning more of these small ones. Most of us will never go on to win the big battles- but it is within us all to keep winning small ones.
Grow your own tobacco, do a deal for cash or trade- teach someone else how to do so.
Don't let the bastards grind you down. It's going to be a painful three years, mark my words.

Big Deal, So What?
Hell, it's just one less politician, to me.
I don't know him personally. I certainly can't stand his party or their ideals- they are just a bunch of control freaks with bad hair.
People die everyday. Why get upset about some character you have never broken organic bread with- nor ever would?
Doesn't make sense to me- but that's people for you!

Morons I have met- ERO
"Findings also highlight significant areas requiring improvement including the development of an English implementation plan, strengthening assessment and quality assurance processes and addressing poor quality teaching in some classes. Recent valid and reliable data show that many children are achieving at below average levels for their age against national norms."
Now if you have an average, surely that means that in a group, there will be those above and those below the average.
So does the school have to produce kids that are all average or above? That would be a neat trick. Having achieved that, they can move on to developing a peace plan for the middle east, banning ugliness and getting us to all love one another. Big group hug!
Back in the real world, the successful will succeed, the mediocre will go work at the Warehouse and those below average- well, all is not lost. Those way below average can always find employment in the government apparatus...

Police wary of camera phone benefits 02 November 2005
The rapid increase in the public's use of camera cellphones is being viewed as a double-edged sword by police.
Rotorua Constable Darrell Earney was annoyed that members of the public stood by and took pictures with their phones as he struggled to arrest a young man for riding a bicycle without a helmet.
He said at least three or four people were taking photographs instead of helping when an officer was in trouble.
Now the story was about cameras, but note the last sentence. People wouldn't come to the assistance of a police officer.
Why would they? When defending themselves, family, homes and property, they are invariably before the courts for doing so!
What is the continual messages from senior police officers?- don't tackle offenders yourself!
Jump in to help a cop and you happen to do the offender some serious damage (easy to do)- see what happens. You can be fairly confident that a jury will find 'not guilty', but you will lose the family home defending yourself.
Until ALL citizens in good standing have the right to use all means available in defence of self or others, expect to see people stand back and watch bad things happen.
The police are in the same sad situation as the rest of us. The answers are at a political level and while we keep voting in wimps and wowsers - expect more of the same.
